Critic Reviews for First Match
Given a handful of fine performances, it's pretty easy to overlook the familiarity of the sports-drama beats to come.
[Newman] tells an unvarnished story that grapples with the complexity of father-daughter relationships and the desperation of feeling like you have no choices.
A tough film with a tender streak for its protagonist and her struggles.
Newman doesn't give the film much room to breathe, or to develop Monique as a person beyond her dysfunctions and the solutions thereof. The film's connect-the-dots approach to storytelling leaves it gasping for slice-of-life details.
Every punch hurts, and Newman doesn't skimp on the bruises and blood.
